One-Pot Sweet Potatoes

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by peg_lyn

This is an easy and delicious way to prepare fresh sweet potatoes on the stove top. I have adapted this recipe from one I found in the "Mamma Dip's Kitchen" cookbook. This is a family favorite in my home.

Excellant choice for PAC 2010. Reading the review, I did keep an eye on this and had it on low this is IMP. I think. Made this for Easter dinner.
